Grandson, member of “The Most Beautiful Villages in Switzerland”
Grandson bore witness to the famous battle of 1476 that opposed Charles the Bold and the Confederates. It is best explored starting from the castle, the second largest in Switzerland. As a classified monument of national interest, the fortress overlooks Lake Neuchâtel and offers a stunning collection of weapons, armour, crossbows and old cars. The most daring visitors will not miss exploring the wall-walk and the torture room. Although hardly any of the Burgundian spoils of war have survived, Grandson offers many hidden treasures.
